Russian troops build crossings in Ukraine to replace bridges blown up by the Ukrainian side


The Ukrainian authorities and military command are calling for the destruction of transport infrastructure when the troops of the republics of Donbass and Russia approach. These actions allegedly contribute to slowing down the advance of the allied forces, making it difficult, in particular, to overcome river barriers due to the destruction of bridges.

At the same time, the high level of saturation of military formations with engineering equipment, capable of quickly establishing crossings of various types, is completely ignored. Numerous videos show the transfer of troops using pontoon-bridge parks and heavy mechanized bridges.

For example, in one of the materials on which the Chrysanthemum-S SPTRK is depicted, a crossing was hastily built by engineers to replace the undermined bridge. In this case, only one section was used - more is not required due to the narrow channel, characteristic of the vast majority of rivers in Ukraine. To install it, one piece of TMM equipment on a motor vehicle or MTU on a caterpillar chassis, carrying one bridge link, is enough.

If it is necessary to overcome rivers with a wide channel, pontoon-bridge parks are used. The installation process is more time consuming, but Russian military engineers are able to complete it in a matter of hours.

Ever since Soviet times, increased attention has been paid to forcing water barriers, which was caused by the high density of rivers in Eastern Europe. Since then, a rich arsenal of means of guiding the crossing has remained in service with the Russian troops, and new systems have been adopted for supply. Therefore, the destruction of bridges by retreating forces or sabotage groups of the Kiev regime does not lead to serious difficulties in the advancement of the RF Armed Forces. In contrast to the negative consequences for the civilian population. However, his interests do not concern the authorities of the Independent after the Maidan coup.

    ... in exchange for the bridges blown up by the Ukrainian side ...

    Well, while the issue of abolishing the death penalty will be decided, they will just restore it.

      The death penalty is allowed in Donbass.

    What’s what, but during the exercises we worked out the logistics. Just don’t show the route, otherwise it will squeal, the Russians are working out forcing the English Channel and the Pas de Calais.

      Anidag hardly went to school at all. And you are the English Channel, the Pas de Calais ... If she starts saying such words, she may not recognize Russia's sovereignty here either. You will completely break her motherboard stop

        Not knowing the enemy's geography makes it easier to defeat him, Trassovaya: What is geography? bully

    So the Nazis are ready not only to build bridges, but to lay down Ukrainians, if only to serve the West.

    As the troops are taught to "work", so they will show themselves!

    A big hello to the Road Companies of the Separate Engineer Battalions. We all do a common thing!
    OISB builds bridges! During the Second World War, the Great Patriotic War, these men in the March water put bridges by hand under shelling. It happened a thousand times. Now it's easier - we have pontoons. Forward, brothers!

    By the way, it's a fact. I think as we approach Kiev, bridges across the Dnieper will also be blown up. By the way, in Kyiv itself, a bridge was blown up on a birch bark

    For this, negotiations are underway - to drag out time to establish the logistics of our parts, and the rivers in this part are the main "evil".

    Well, since the Second World War, experience has remained, where to build crossings and how ..
    They drove the Nazis then and now their grandchildren and great-grandchildren are chasing them ...
    Forgive us for allowing all this .. We will return EVERYTHING and even more !!!! hi

    The tactics of the Second World War with undermining bridges and locomotives, with the lightning speed of modern operations and the presence of floating armored vehicles and engineering equipment in the advancing orders, does not justify itself at all .. Only problems with transport logistics will subsequently cause residents. This once again speaks of the adoption by Ukraine of a plan of self-destruction as a state, which the Nazis are successfully implementing.
